Welcome to the online presence of Eccleston Church of St Mary’s and Pulford Church of St Mary’s. These two Church of England communities are set in the beautiful countryside – south of Chester, close to the Welsh border and to the Eaton Estate, the home of the Duke of Westminster.

The heart of our life together is our conviction that Jesus Christ is God’s magnificent gift to the world. Our aim is to know him better and to make him known.

Whether you describe yourself as a believer, an explorer, or just looking, we look forward to meeting you soon.

There is an all age service on the 3rd Sunday of every month.
